As I write this, BaR2D2 is undergoing upgrades. The store bought shot dispenser will be removed. In its place will be six plastic bottles and a pressurized/regulated air system. A laptop computer with an extensive drink database will send commands to a Bluetooth receiver/circuit board on BaR2D2 which, in turn, will send them to six solenoid valves that dispense mixed drinks to order! The upgrade should be complete by Feb/Mar 2009.
BaR2D2 is scheduled to attend Dragon*con
again this Labor Day weekend in Atlanta. If you see us, come check him out :)
Here is a pic of the upgrade parts template. Stay tuned for updates to BaR2D2!
